Yasgur Dairy Farm, Woodstock Festival Site – 1969 vs 2020
There will always be one that everyone thinks of when it comes to music and lifestyle festivals. Woodstock was marketed as a three-day music and art event to be “the most important artistic and spiritual experience in history,” but it wasn’t quite so pleasant. With over 400,000 people in attendance, it was anything but calm.
The famous event took place on a dairy farm in Bethel, New York, owned by Max and Miriam Yasgur. You don’t think about where these festivals are held often, but a dairy farm is an excellent location for 400,000 people. And these two side-by-side comparisons showcase the enormous size of this well-known event.
